  • Third of three shows for the One Live event in Brighton, featuring Melt-Banana, who draw rave reviews from Peel. Mogwai had also been due to play but pulled out at the last minute due to illness. Peel is very grateful to the late replacements.
  • Set details from the BBC Peel site.
  • Start of show: (JP (from stage): “Welcome to Brighton. The weather outside is appalling – there’s a storm, a lot of rain, seabirds being blown against the walls of four-star hotels – but we are going to try and warm things up for you here. And we start with one of the most extraordinary experiences available to you on the planet. Please, this is Melt-Banana!”)
